We Are…

We Are…

​The Blue Black and White

The colour of unity & pride,

Wagging under Sun’s shine.
Birds, Wind and working

Men, all share this tranquil

Land. Peace and Love have

Been woven into our DNA.

We are cut from the linen

Worn by the Son of Man.
We are Compassion, we are

Hospitality, we are Warmth

We are Sons and Daughters

Of the Desert. We are

Batswana a.k.a Bechuana.

Faith…

Faith…

All I had was hope.
A floral dress I wore
Expecting a cool and
Sunny day with bright
Skies, whose blue
Canvas skin was
Patched with white
Puffy candy floss like
Clouds.

But today came
Courted with news,
Her golden day star
Hid from view and
Wept. Her tears tore
Apart a gradually
Growing hope.

But having brooded
Over my unsuspecting
Hope’s defeat. I fell
Upon a thought of
Substance:

“Faith is the substance
Of things hoped for,
The evidence of
Things not seen.”

My hope lacked
Something.
Substance.

Faith
!

Love. God. Word: The Trinity.

Love. God. Word: The Trinity.

In a council of thoughts
Whose motives I never really
Know or fully understand,
Whose advice do I take?

In between raging pulpitations
That beat my heart into a deep
Affection for you, what exactly
Is this I feel; love?

I heard Love was God and
God, Love. So for you I will
Let God lead. I will let God
Weave our way into each
Other’s arms, full sleeve.

John said, “In the beginning
Was the Word…the word was
God
“; So to take the edge of
‘The Wait’ off, I write.

The Wait…

Tossing and turning,
Going back and forth;
Jumping from thought
To thought. Many are
These thoughts but
Really just one. Sleep
Is just eluding him.

His head lays
Sandwiched between
The two pillows,
His heavy breaths
Coming short, one
After another.

Severe sinuses
Punctuate each one
Of these breaths. But
One of which he
Manages to hold for
A few seconds before
Jumping off to the
Side of his bed.

He knelt there with
His back pole-straight
And fists clasped
Tightly against his
Violently pounding
Chest.

Even in his partial
Slumber: “Dear God…”,
He prayed for her.

I wonder;
If she prays
For him too, if she
Ever finds herself
In the sweet company
Of thoughts about him.

If her prayers
Ever meet his
Somewhere in the
Starry darkness of
Between midnight and
Dawn, floating about
In vast ether, enroute
The His gracious ear.

Every night he
Closes his earnest
Prayer, and patiently
He waits:

“Amen!”

Deliver My Soul.

Each and every day,
On and on I go
About my sinful way.
Snubbing the wage
I will, have to pay,
Someday,
When I meet my
Lord’s wrath and rage.

Even some say,
The Bible is a fictional
Book written by crooks
Who took, their imaginations
To places we ourselves
Never ever should;
That they created
Utopian places even
They, never understood.

Heaven, is only but
A milk and honey
Coated haox, so those
Who believe their souls
Will soar to a place of hope
This book they quote,
They may as well just throw
To the ambry coals,
‘Cause ‘yoh’! YOLO!
“You Only Live Once,”
So let’s ‘Carpe this diem’.

Or maybe my ‘freedom’
As well is needing of context,
This feeling of fear is
Breeding a spout of doubt,
And sieving the truth.

If indeed by chance
I came unto being;
Then how do I even
Trust my own reasoning?

So please Lord,
Take me to your river
And deliver, my soul
From heathen!

Thank You.

Thank you.

For being the snooze
Alarm on my circular
Compass, redirecting
My feet as I traverse
Through this ungracious
Journey of life.

For being the stars
That adorn the
Darkness of my
Demeanor’s
Moonless nights.

And for being the voice
That speaks within;
The mode of communication
Through which HE
Reaches me. For that:

I thank you.
